Lash Extensions?

on Sep 09, 2012 @ 08:53 am

Hi Chicks! 

I've been looking into having eyelash extensions done, but haven't heard much about them from people who have had them done.. So, I'd like some reviews, advice or just opinions!

Would you recommend having them done?

I personally would like to try them too...though I'm always a bit afraid of that kind of stuff. I'd experiment with some different mascaras first to see if you can find one that mimics what you are looking for (length/volume etc).

I would recommend you to go for it.

They are awesome BUT....there's always a but isn't there? on Sep 10, 2012 @ 08:27 am

They are a tad high maintenance. I have had them on and off for 2 years now. You have to understand that they do NOT feel like your natural lashes (mainly because they aren't-they are synthetic). Also, when you get them applied, you have to wait between 48-72 hours before getting them wet, sweating, etc. You are advised to use water based remover as an oil base can break down the adhesive faster. Also, you will need to comb/brush them on a regular basis. Depending on how well you care for them, they can last from 2-6 weeks.

I have heard of people using mascara on top of their extensions-I have never done that. To me, it cancels out the point of having the extensions! I know if you do use mascara, it has to be a certain type specifically for lash extensions.

Overall,they look amazing-I always love how I look with the extensions. Just understand that they do require "after-care"

Thanks! on Sep 11, 2012 @ 06:12 pm

Thanks so much for the information!

I have also heard that there was a lot of "after care" for the extensions. I'm honestly not sure if I'd be prepared for that, but on the other hand - I love the look of them!

I've used tons of different mascaras, and haven't found one that suited my fancy. The only time I found something that looked awesome, was with a set of fake lashes.

I think I'm going to go for it. I'll make sure to update!
